The Reno, Nevada-based casino, Peppermill Resort Spa Casino, recently notified the public that they have experienced a Point-of-Sale breach that has exposed their customers’ credentials.
According to Peppermill’s notification letter, “This security incident relates to the unauthorized and illegal acquisition, by criminal hackers, of certain kinds of credit and debit cards used at Peppermill’s front desk.”
